Ladies: Could avoiding men be the key to living a longer life? 109-year-old Jessie Gallan seems to think so. The thriving senior from Scotland says that men are “just more trouble than they’re worth.” The Doctors discuss how relationships can affect one’s health and well-being.
Family medicine physician Dr. Rachael Ross notes that studies have shown that while men’s health improves with marriage, women’s health actually declines after they tie the knot. Furthermore, according to a National Health Interview Survey, single women report fewer visits to the doctor’s office than their married peers!
ER physician Dr. Travis Stork adds that the quality of the relationship is important, because good, loving unions have been shown to improve the health and emotional well-being of each partner.
